_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
I grew up with an apple orchard on the property. I don't know what kinds they were. They weren't anything you find in the stores today.<br><br>Do you remember when apples really smelled like apples? I could smell them feet away. These things we buy in the stores are not even close in flavour or aroma to what I had in my youth.<br><br>
